Working with the architects, Cassell Tarring Architects, we are providing full Quantity Surveying services to the client including budget estimates, contract documentation and post-contract services including ongoing assessment of valuations, variations and financial reports.

Rural Somerset Residential Property

Working with Louise Crossman Architects this project involves the construction of a two storey 215m2 house for our clients on the site of a previously demolished building. The new property is of unique design with bespoke materials and finishes including a 'twisted' first floor over the ground floor to take advantage of the fantastic countryside views. Works commenced in the autumn of 2022 and is nearing completion.

North Cornwall New Build

This project entailed the demolition of the existing bungalow and the building of a 330m2 two storey house utilising beam and block and masonry structures with render and timber finishes. We provided Quantity Surveying services to the client through a negotiated tender with a preferred local contractor utilising a Prime Cost Contract and the project commenced in the autumn of 2022 and has just completed.

North Devon Barn Conversion

Working with Louise Crossman Architects we are engaged as Quantity Surveyors for this barn conversion project near Bideford. The project comprises conversion of a series of agricultural barns in various states of disrepair into a single residential property. Works include extensive repair and replacement of existing external stone walling, complete new services including the installation of renewable energy sources, installation of mezzanine floors, provision of glazing into large openings, complete new roofing and extensive landscaping with drainage. The project has been on site since the winter of 2021 and has suffered from a number of delays including Covid and replacement of the Main Contractor. However the project has now completed.

Oak Frame Residential Property

Designed by BBH Architects of Dartmouth this project consists of the construction of a new two storey house on a steeply sloping site.  The new property is presently being constructed using Nudura ICF for the ground floor alongside oak framing on the first floor. Extensive groundworks are ongoing along with associated driveway and parking works. The contract sum was negotiated with a preferred local contractor and we are providing full post contract Quantity Surveying services. Work commenced in spring 2021 and has now completed.

Seaside Garage Conversion

Situated in South Cornwall this existing garagewas partially demolished and completely remodelled in order to provide the owner with an incredible annexe for use as a home office, library and contemplation space. With a surprising amount of space created in an innovative way the annexe takes up no more of a footprint than the original garage. This project was designed by David Sheppard Architects and work started on site in the summer of 2021. It was a complex and challenging project in many ways but the main contractor overcame these issues and completed in the summer of 2022. We provided Quantity Surveying services including processing valuations and providing on going cost and contractual advice to the client.
